A renowned political support group in Delta State, Team Siakpere for Oborevwori has celebrated the victory of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori at the Supreme Court with a call on the opposition to join hands with government to develop the state.

Speaking at a well attended victory rally at Aghalokpe, Okpe Local Government Area, Director-General of the group, Mr John Ewhubare Siakpere commended members of the group and Deltans for their support leading to the victory of the Governor.

He stated that Gov. Oborevwori was determined to provide even development across the state, assuring that the best was yet to come for the people.

Siakpere who was represented by Hon. Donald Akpojohare, Chairman Team Siakpere for Oborevwori said it was God’s grace to survive 38 pre-election and post election cases without losing any.

He said: “My dear people of Aghalokpe and stalwarts of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), I bring you felicitations and appreciation of our principal, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, Governor of Delta State on the occasion of the victory rally to celebrate our triumph at the Supreme Court last Friday.

“As party faithful and stakeholders in the Sheriff Oborevwori’s gubernatorial project we thank God immensely for the final resolution of all the 38 court cases in favour of the Governor.

“With the cases now over, the Governor can now concentrate further to provide Deltans with massive dividends of democracy as earlier encapsulated in his MORE Agenda.

“I implore all our brothers and sisters in the opposition to join hands with the Governor by bringing all their ideas and good intents to ensure even development and progress of our state.

“Elections and litigations are over and it is now time for governance across board. Let us shun divisive tendencies and join hands with the ruling party in the state to provide Deltans with the much needed infrastructural and human capital development of our dear state,” he said.

Siakpere further remarked that the last 8 months have been tremendous with several audacious moves from the Governor adding that the best was yet to come from him.

“Already Governor Oborevwori has hit the ground running and did not allow the court cases to slow down delivery of his MORE Agenda for Deltans.

“He defied all odds to award a contract worth N78bn to Julius Berger Nigeria Plc for the construction of three flyovers, cloverleaf, pedestrian bridges and road expansion projects in Effurun and Warri metropolis.

“This is the first time Julius Berger is working for the State Government in the history of the state and we must commend our amiable Governor for taking this wise decision.

“The Governor has also awarded contracts for the construction of adjoining roads through Adagbrasa, Oka junction and Agbarho to ease traffic during construction of the flyovers at PTI junction and DSC Roundabout.

“Aside projects, the Governor has paid the sum of N5.5billion to workers in the state to defray promotion arrears owed workers over the years.

“Oborevwori also approved the borrowing of N40billion to pay outstanding pensions owed local government and primary school retirees.

“As a prudent Governor who is ever committed to fiscal discipline and accountability, Governor Oborevwori paid the sum of N93.9billion out of the state’s domestic debt profile of N465,404,504, 431.59.

“As at September 2023, the domestic debt had dropped to N371,485,618, 063.33 which is a reduction of N93,918,886,368.26 representing 20.18% decrease.

“Now that the storm is over, it’s time to work together for the people. My advice for the opposition is for them to join us in working for the people. Whatever criticism must be what is beneficial to the state, because all we are praying for is for the good of the state.

“As members of Team Siakpere for Oborevwori we thank all Deltans for their support and we assure them of Governor Oborevwori’s genuine commitment to the sustainable growth and development of Delta State,” he added.

The victory rally featured a motor cade and motorcycles and tricycles with jubilant members showing appreciation to God and the people for their support. Guests were later served the popular local meal “Ukodo” to the delight of everyone at the ceremony.
